The National Maritime Museum (NMM) in Greenwich, London, is the leading maritime museum of the United Kingdom and may be the largest museum of its kind in the world. The historic buildings form part of the Maritime Greenwich World Heritage Site, and it also incorporates the Royal Observatory and 17th-century Queen’s House.

Since earliest times Greenwich has had associations with the sea and navigation. It was a landing place for the Romans; Henry VIII lived here;

the navy has roots on the waterfront. The Museum has the most important holdings in the world on the history of Britain at sea comprising more than two million items. Its British portraits collection is exceeded in size only by that of the National Portrait Gallery and its holdings relating to Vice-Admiral Horatio Nelson and Captain James Cook, among many other individuals, are unrivalled.

  • Drop off is on Romney Road (A206) or Park Row, immediately outside the museum.

Learn to Photograph Water: Reflections, Splashes & Waves

Thursday 10th August 11am to 4:00pm

Sharp Shots Photo Club will lead a photography workshop for families to learn how to photograph water creatively.

Using the Our Connection to Water exhibition as inspiration, Sharp Shots will take families on a tour through the exhibition, discussing the inspiring work and helping participants to understand how they too can capture water creatively with their cameras.

Participants will learn how to use focus, zoom, shutter speed and light to really help their water images stand out. All different types of water will be captured in the workshop, from running water, to water balloons, bubbles and the moving water of the Thames.

Participants will finish with a wonderful set of creative images of water, and will be able to print out their top two images to take home and share!
